    Just finished this piece of video trying to depict a travel into the past ....

    All shots done with the Phantom 2 , Zenmuse 3D and Gopro Black + , ND Filter, 2k, 24fp, Protune.
    Edited in Premiere Pro CC.
    Dont forget to watch in 1440 p if you have a fast internet connection
    Please provide me with your feedback !
    I created this video just for fun but I think that it could be used for documentary or touristic promotion purposes.

    Very nice video - loved the shot where you switch sides at the battlement @ 2.13 .

    Nice to have the history at the end.

    Nice!
    Unfortunately for me I live in this island, so my only teacher is the internet ( although great teacher...) and my patience.
    I am into this hobby for about 8 months now and I have so much to learn yet...

    You got skills. Keep shooting and cutting and story telling. At the end of the day, all the cool gear is only tools to tell a story!

    Geo, very nice video you might consider putting it up on Skypixel.com . You might also consider making a short version, the history at the end may be a little long for some folks. Overall great flying and editing skills.

    Top notch - excellent filming made really special by excellent editing. I love the flash/zoom transitions, you have used them well. Also like the way you start off by looking through the hole then finish off by coming back through it.

    One thing I like but feel you have used a little too much and could make better is the lens flare effects. My only advice is to key frame them so they move as your camera moves. They just look a little static which makes them look an added on special effect (which of course they are) but you need to make them look more real as if they are real lens flare. Just a minor critisism as the rest of the vid is great.

    It is true that the history epilogue is somewhat lengthy in proportion to the rest of the film, but that would be an ongoing project where eventualy other historical places of interest will find their way into the film. So i think the history scene will serve this purpose quite well...

    Thank you all for your kind words and the much needed feedback - critisism
    Quite right about the lens flare key framing, but did not have any more free time. It will be corrected plus some other minor details in a feauture version of a more lengthy film with more places of interest...
